Billionaire Carter Aymes, director of Cyber Operations, a covert cyborg force, devotes his wealth and life to saving others, rescuing hostages and other victims from desperate situations. His ultimate mission is to hunt down and eliminate Lamani, the alien terrorist mastermind, before he conquers the galaxy.

When Carter hires Beth O’Shea, a vulnerable but courageous woman with connections to his past, their attraction is immediate and strong, but he knows getting involved with her is a bad idea. He’s her boss, and he has way too many classified projects to protect to risk letting someone get close.

Rejected by the progenitors who cloned her, Beth is determined to live a normal human life, beginning by getting an ordinary job with a security firm. But, from the start, she questions the extraordinary secrecy surrounding the organization. She can’t help but wonder about the tall, muscled, larger-than-life director who gave her a chance when she desperately needed one. Could he ever be romantically interested in a woman like her, in a clone?

When Beth is attacked, they both realize how short and tenuous life is, and their mutual attraction becomes too powerful to resist.
As their relationship heats up, so does the urgency to capture Lamani before he can unleash a stealth weapon at a critical planetary Summit meeting. With time running out, Carter discovers that stopping Lamani may require sacrificing Beth’s life.

Will Carter be able to rescue her, or will his new love be the one person he can’t save?

Lisa Thoughts – I had not read this series when I grab it off of Net Galley -but the cover,title & Blurb looked like something I would enjoy. I had little problems picking up the story of Carter (Cyborg) & Beth (clone). Beth is the clone of a women that Carter new in college but she is her own person. As Carter is with his enhanced changes – its an exciting story with a romance but also shows acceptance of each other is important in everyone’s life.  If you are looking for a little space adventure look no farther – now I need the rest of the series.   Lisa

From Net Galley 

 

Tensions sizzle in this electrifying novel guaranteed to capture your heart and
take your breath away. Fans of Julie Garwood, Suzanne Brockmann and Jayne Ann Krentz will
devour this action-packed, emotionally stunning tour de force, where every page reveals
another damning secret and another daring gamble. 

Rotting in an
African dungeon is the last place journalist Tess Newell expected to find herself. Held
hostage by the terrorist group she’s been investigating, Tess’s salvation—and
temptation—arrives in the form of another prisoner. A French Foreign Legionnaire with
a sinful smile and too many secrets to be anything but dangerous. Yet she knows he’s her
only hope of surviving.

The Legion is the only family Flynn has. His sanctuary
and his purgatory, after years spent in hell. When a mission goes south and Flynn is
captured, it’s not the enemy that worries him, but rather the brazen, alluring reporter
whose prying questions threaten to bring down his world—and the walls he’s built
around his heart.

Yet after a daring escape, Flynn must risk it all and go on
the run with Tess to retrieve the evidence she needs. The chemistry between them threatens
to detonate but, with the enemy fast closing in, time is running out to unravel the truth
from the lies in this deadly conspiracy…

Lisa Thought : This is my first book from this author. This is part of a series but it can be read as a stand alone book ( I did) . A great romantic suspense with great characters in Tess ( journalist) and Flynn ( Legion soldier). Tess is investigating a terrorist with military /political ties when she is captured and meets Flynn. After a daring escape to retrieve her proof – Tess & Flynn and his  Legion team members join the chase for justice.   But not all is what it seems as secrets are revealed and passion flares as the two battle for truth. An exciting story that comes off the front pages of the newspaper. I will differently read more from this author and this series. Lisa

Ghost hunter Verity Long is overdue for a little R&R (rest and romance) with her boyfriend, Ellis, and a vintage train trip through the Tennessee mountains seems like just the ticket. The Sugarland Express carries history and nostalgia in every compartment, and Verity is determined to enjoy it—without ghostly interference. But the ghosts have other plans…

On a dark, desolate night nearly a century ago, the train was stranded in the mountains, and a young woman was found stabbed to death in her locked compartment. The murder was never solved, and a ghostly Belgian detective is still pursuing the case from the grave.

To Verity’s dismay, all of the ghostly suspects are back. And when history repeats itself and a new murder mirrors the old, it’s up to Verity and her friends to discover which of the passengers—dead or alive—could be behind the murders before the killer strikes again.

Lisa Thoughts – No its not the Orient express its the Sugar land Express  in book #6 in this next great book. With a great combination of whit & southern charm this super sleuth will solve the murder on the train in true Verity style. This is another fun book in this series combining Agatha Christie Orient Express & Angie Fox’s Ghost Hunter .  (   From Net Galley)
